If I had a blog...

Well, I do have a blog. But.

You know how there are people who are food bloggers, travel bloggers, fashion bloggers, research bloggers, etc., etc., etc.?

I was thinking, if I had to pick just one kind of blogger to be, what would I pick? What do I often notice about the world? What would I want to share? The problem I was having, thinking about this, was that I know that as much as I like baked goods (for example), I'd probably get tired of writing about the same thing all the time.

Then I had an idea:

I could be a color blogger.

I could share things that are interesting colors. Nice arrangements of colors. Interesting patterns.

Not like the design bloggers or interior decorator bloggers or crafty people who share how to pick colors that go together in quilts or anything quite as useful as that.

Just colors.

Here are my colors for today:

(I'm not going to switch to only posting photos of things that are colors I like, mind you. This is a thought experiment. A thought experiment that might include more photos of things that are colorful in the future.)

I've posted a decent number of photos over the years -- nearly every photo on this website is one I've taken. While one could feasibly wander back through my archives to view them, I decided to spare one the trouble.

I've collected a comprehensive list of my photography-themed posts. I have yet to add a complete gallery of all the photos I've ever posted, but that's in the works.

New to your eyes, dear reader, is the special section on the Vassar Palmer Gallery exhibit Through the Student Lens, which featured two of my photos!

View from the room

During my senior year at Vassar, I periodically took photos through my bedroom window of the trees and the courtyard area between all the senior apartments. The end result? This series, showing the seasons changing throughout the year. Photos are unedited.

that's more like it: buds and leaves on the trees, green grass, blue sky with puffy white clouds

the same beautiful spring day: it's all sunshine and puppies!

April 29, 2011

If I did this kind of series again, I'd make a point of putting the camera in the same place every time, and taking photos at set intervals. I think it still turned out pretty cool.
